Oh, so not only will the government mandate that I need to drive an electric vehicle, it'll tell me when I can recharge it. ie: got home from work and plugged in, but my charger won't work until 5-7AM. Need a loaf of bread? Too bad no charge, so walk. Have to get to the ER because I cut my hand? Too bad . . . Wrap it up, no power, no car.

Yeah, that'll work real well. Uh-huh!


It won't be govt mandates but on the fly pricing changes. Power from say 5-8pm will be very high because that's typically the peak demand period and solar is producing nothing. Late night will likely be cheaper and if solar continues to grow mid day will be cheap. It's up to you when you want to charge.

Exaggeration??? Of course it is, but you tell me how you control when charging is mandated in low demand times? Rules? Yeah that'll work, ha ha, everyone always follows the rules. Timers? Everyone has different needs and who coordinates that?? California has rolling brownouts now, remember. Just a whole new bureaucracy to schedule things. Full of GS employees? Yeah, the government works efficiently now, right? Ideas are great and cheap, Tell me the details on how it works. We can't even pass a Covid relief bill.


We wouldnt need Covid relief if president took the Virus seriously in the first place and mandated everyone to wear protective masks to prevent spread of Covid

China did that and stoped the Cvirus in three months,
Same w Japan and S.K and most Asian countries,
but then PRC has engineers runin the show,,not some ex tv personality Lol

Electricity travels at speed o light so if Cali is short,
Id imagine it should be able to import power from Arizona or wherever the Solar farms generate excess power.

Cooperation doesnt it exist anymore?

Along with electric vehicles will come the switch to Green Energy.
Solar, wind, tidal, hydro etc.
The oil and gas industry will be in decline. The use of coal continues to decline.
Mining will still be required to support electric vehicles.
Diesel engines will gain in popularity over gas engines, because biodiesel can be produced from many different sources, including algae.

Biodiesel dont work in cold weather.
Id think propane or LNG would be better,cleaner or ethanol methanol,maybe?

What is the range?
How much load can it pull,carry ?
Where will you recharge it drivin cross country?
How long is battery guaranteed for?

Is the body stronger then Tesla stainles steel?

Unless it beats Tesla in all these specs it
Doesnt have much of a chance against Cybrtrk imo

Unfortunately I have none of those answers. Think we’ll have to wait till 2022 to find out. [emoticon].

As an Electrician I'm looking forward to it for how much work it will generate (no pun intended). Ever notice there are at most 6-8 charging stations at a location? Partially because of demand but mainly because that building and all the other buildings do not have the electrical capacity to have more stations. It will be a huge undertaking to increase capacity. California now has rolling blackouts during the summer guess what happens when all the commuter cars plug-in at 6PM?
